I picked up a used Canon 6D with a few wide angle and fish eye lenses. Looking into doing the Astronomik clear glass mod described by Gary Honis and getting the various clip-filters to make it a three purpose camera. Original white balance (OWB) for family photos, IR-pass for infrared, and one of the filters for astrophotography. It looks like if I'm imaging through the C8 without any lenses that I wouldn't need the UV+IR filter since it doesn't suffer from chromatic aberration.
Any tips on getting into DSLR would be much appreciated. I also picked up an AC adapter that clicks in where the battery usually goes and a double ball head clamp on mount and various accouterments. $$$ Thankfully the wife is VERY supportive and is just as fascinated... she hasn't had much chance to look through the scope and is living vicariously through the photos.
